Loved Ones

I'm going to lunch with Eli (aunt Leelee) today. She's one of my dearest friends. She reminds me so much of my wonderful MIL (I got lucky with mine). Thinking of these two very sweet women made me think of a few other people here in H* that I've become extremely close with. I've learned that you can still have a family while family is nearly 2000 miles away. Today I'm grateful for my wonderful friends and loved ones that treat me like family even though we aren't related to one another. I feel very blessed.

A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.

it's all about friends as family when you're far away. we've been away from family the whole time we've been married. our christmas card list is overflowing with people who got us through and treated us like family all along the way.

I'm glad you and Steven treat me like family, even though we're not related...
